The Ringer

Anonymous

The Ringer by AnonymousIn April of 2012 Astronomers Paul Davies and Robert Wagner who are affiliated with Arizona State University, filmed five large UFOs flying over the surface of the moon. Even though Paul Davies is a theoretical physicist and a cosmologist who is now involved in astrobiology, and Robert Wagner is affiliated with ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration, U.S. mainstream media did not consider this scientific research to be newsworthy. While scientific discoveries of this magnitude should be front page news, they are purposely buried, preventing any educative knowledge regarding extraterrestrials....

Lawrence ("Lawrence of Arabia") while serving with rebel forces during the Arabian Revolt against the Ottoman Turks.

Healing Doses of Danger

Ladislav Sedlak

Healing Doses of Danger by Ladislav SedlakThe text of this book does not fit any category. It's like listening to a storyteller around the campfire rather reading the book. The author does not use any common literary devices as gradation, dramatization or emotionalism. In spite of that, his book made such a strong impact on me that I still remember clearly every story.

The Seven Year-Old Pilot

Capt. Steven Archille

The Seven Year-Old Pilot by Capt. Steven ArchilleFlying has been my dream since before I can remember... literally. My Aunt Odette tells me that when I was three years old, she took me with her to the Port-au-Prince International Airport to pick someone up, and when I saw an airliner up close for the first time, I excitedly yelled out, "I want to drive that!" I don't recall that event, but it serves as evidence that my fascination with flying began at a remarkably young age.

My first memory of wanting to fly came a few years later at the age of seven. I was on my very first flight, from Port-au-Prince to New York City, where I was going to...

E. D

Road Trip America 1975: Two young women, one old car and 3,000 miles by E.

This is the story of their adventures. Staying in a Salvation Army Girls' Hostel in Atlanta, they spent the night with young women just out of prison who thought E.D and Ellie were also in trouble. They listened to jazz in New Orleans and slept in a village compound in Mexico. In San Miguel Del Allende, they bumped into an old friend and then were picked up by two young...

Accidentally Istanbul: Decoding Turkey for the enquiring Western traveller

Nancy Knudsen

Accidentally Istanbul: Decoding Turkey for the enquiring Western traveller by Nancy Knudsen

Nancy Knudsen never meant to go to Istanbul.

Maybe she might have included it as part of a holiday along with other dazzling European cities such as Venice, Paris or Salzburg. But the idea of actually living in a Muslim country as an ordinary citizen rather than tourist or expat corporate executive, would never have occurred to her.

Knudsen??s story is vivid, lively and sometimes hilarious, full of insights into things she wished she??d known before she arrived in an all-black apartment above a sports field, with not a word of Turkish. She found almost nothing in guidebooks or histories to help...
